Occupying the top 2 floors of a traditional Savoyard farmhouse in peaceful Les Vallons, Le Baptieux is a truly chic chalet-apartment consisting of 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and an additional WC, as well as stunning open-plan kitchen and dining area and secret sunken lounge and office rooms, all of which have been furnished to the highest quality and detail.
Enter Le Baptieux via its private, first floor entrance and be immediately swept away – your holiday has begun. To your right is the utility room with washer and dryer, one of the property’s four WCs, and ample storage. Up the wide staircase ahead of you is the absolutely stunning open-plan kitchen and dining space. Double height ceilings and floor to ceiling windows dominate this bright and spacious area, which simply oozes style.
The fully equipped kitchen is every chef’s delight. The central preparation ‘island’ is simply stunning with its dark, stone-topped surface and breakfast bar for four. As well as large slide-out drawers for storage, the island is fitted with a multi-function electric oven and induction four-burner hob. There is also a wine fridge with temperature control and panel to ensure your favourite drop is conserved just so. Along the entire back wall of the kitchen is a second work space comprising large wash basin, dishwasher, combination microwave and oven, and ample storage cabinets. A full-size fridge-freezer is in a separate walk-in pantry just off the kitchen.
Enjoy your meals in the truly glorious dining space, which affords views of the open fields of Les Vallons and mountains beyond through floor to ceiling windows. After dinner, retire to the sunken lounge – an absolute haven. Relax in one of the two enormous corner sofas or a third plush two-seater couch in this large and comfortable space. The teardrop fireplace is stunning and there are ample throws and cushions to get extra cosy. Make the most of the superb home-entertainment system with smart Samsung TV with surround sound, Orange TV and Wi-Fi Internet throughout, CD/Blu-ray disc player, and Iphone/Ipad docking station. There is also a vast array of DVDs available for your viewing.
On the other side of the dining room is a second sunken room - a private study. Here you can while away the hours with a good book, get some work done or simply relax in the quiet, private space. You can even strum on the owner’s guitar, which has been left for your use.
From the property’s lower level step out on to one of your two south-facing balconies overlooking the large garden below. A luxurious sauna, housed in a traditional Savoyard Mazot, sits at the bottom of the garden. Both the gardens and sauna are shared with La Ruche next door. The second balcony is situated on the upper level of the farmhouse along with the three beautifully decorated bedrooms with private ensuite bathrooms. Le Baptieux is centrally heated with under floor heating throughout. The chalet has stairs that are not suitable for very young children.
